The Dallas Cowboys are currently the best team in the NFL this season with a 10-1 record. A large part of that success is down to their fantastic rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Despite this being his first season, the 21-year-old has rushed for 1,199 yards and 11 touchdowns on 243 carries, which leads the league. Every single time he hits the endzone or makes a big play, he breaks out his 'feed me' celebration.

It's a celebration that is not only catching on with the fans but with other players in the league as well. When Elliott was asked what he thinks about other players copying his celebration, he brushed it off very easily.

He said on Twitter: "It's cute they want to be like me."

Dallas Morning News also noted that Elliott said on the topic: “I think it’s funny. It just shows that they’re focused on what you do. I think it kind of shows that you’re doing a little bit of something. If people want to go out there and try to mock you, they want to do what you do, I think it’s kind of a compliment, honestly, that they care enough to even do that.”

Elliott is truly is taking the league by storm as his performances on the field are putting him in MVP contention, and his celebrations are just the icing on the cake for what is bound to be an absolutely incredible rookie season.

It's a big ask, but if he is able to rack up another 609 yards and seven more touchdowns before the end of the regular season, he will have the best rushing season ever by a rookie in NFL history.

He's got five games to do it in so it's a tough task, but not impossible. All the Cowboys have to do is feed him the ball.
